“Truly Enjoyed visiting this Museum.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

Learned quite a bit of the Concord NH & the surrounding area. Truly fascinating & informative especially for someone whom does NOT know anything of the East Coast & said area, although the Staff was NOT as keen to be as helpful as one would have thought, especially to someone NOT from the East Coast area at all.

“Lots of good information!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

This museum really carefully depicted the life in the early years for New Hampshire residents. Beautiful exhibits, all tastefully presented. We really enjoyed it.

“Lacking”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013 via mobile

This is suppose to be a history museum of New Hampshire. This is the state Capitol and yet the museum is extremely weak on history. Sorry but I was expecting a lot more!!!

“Fun time for little money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

We enjoyed this small museum. My fav place in it is a huge painting of a path thru the woods....and no matter where you walk or stand or turn your head, the path is always exactly in front of you. It is so neat! Then go roam around Concord for a bit and explore the side streets too, its a fun little town!
